IMBLER SQUEAKS PAST WESTON-MCEWEN

WALLOWA — The Imbler girls and the Weston-McEwen TigerScots fought for control almost all game in a tight contest at the Wallowa Lions Basketball Tournament Friday.

"It was just a close game all day," Imbler coach Dale Wagner said.

In the end, the Panthers (6-1) defeated the TigerScots 44-41.

Wagner said the Panthers led the whole game by six or eight points at the most.

"It was a close game," he said. "No one pulled away."

Even though Leanne Foster, who shot 63 percent for a game-high 16 points, and Hannah Hall fouled out for the Panthers near the end of the fourth, the team still prevailed.

Emily Correll had 12 rebounds for the Panthers.

The Panthers play Wallowa for the tournament championship at 6 p.m. today.

WALLOWA GIRLS EDGE PAST HARD-PLAYING JOSEPH 49-44

WALLOWA — The Wallowa girls defeated Joseph 49-44 in the Wallowa Lions Basketball Tournament Friday.

"We just never were in sync all night," he said.

Mysha Oveson led the Cougars with 16 points followed by Holli Barton with 12.

BAIN'S 27 POINTS POWERS POWDER VALLEY GIRLS PAST ADRIAN

HUNTINGTON — The Powder Valley basketball girls got off to a fast start and got 27 points from their star Joelle Bain en route to a 62-47 win over Adrian at the Huntington Tournament opener Friday.

The Badgers (6-2) scored 20 points in the first quarter and built up a lead of 48-29 after three quarters.

Coach Allen Bingham said it was apparent that the girls, who won their fifth straight, were a little rusty after the Christmas break.

"We had some rough spots. We could've played a lot better. Yet we had some things that went quite well," said Bingham.

Powder Valley ran a good fast break, Bingham said, but the Badgers fouled too much, giving up 25 free-throw attempts.

Shauna Nelson also scored in double figures with 12. Trisha Hernandez led Adrian with 18 points.

The girls play in the tournament finale today.

ELGIN GIRLS OVERCOME TURKEY TORPOR THROUGH TOUGH DEFENSE

ECHO — The Elgin basketball girls struggled from the floor, but played tough first-half defense to beat Spray Friday 43-31 at their Echo Tournament opener Friday.

The Huskies (6-1) only gave up nine first-half points and had a 14-point lead at the break.

In fact, this game was indicative of the girls' stout defense all year. In seven games, the Huskies are giving up an average of just 27.6 points a game.

Randy McKone said his girls didn't shoot that well, and he thought the Christmas break may have played some part.

"Too much turkey and ham in their bellies, I guess," he said. "I was was happy we got out of there with a win."

Elgin was led in scoring by Amber Looslie with 14. Kim McCrae also scored eight.

Elgin plays in the conclusion of the Echo Tournament today.
